Pão de queijo: a delicious (party) snack from Brasil

Big thanks to Diego and his Mom for this lovely recipe that I make over and over again
Pão de Queijo (Cheese Bread)

Makes about 100-130

-      0.5kg of sour tapioca flour (can be found in the Portuguese shop)
-      1-2 big potatoes cooked & smashed
-      1 tea spoon of salt
-      Mix the above very well.

In a separate bowl:

          - 1-2 eggs
          - 125ml of corn oil
          - 250ml of milk
          - 250grs of Gruyere cheese
         
Mix everything very well! Make small balls.

You can either freeze for later it or to cook – put in the oven at 200C degrees and bake until “slightly golden” (around 15 mins) 

Enjoy!!

Pão de queijo is irresistable with some butter or fresh cheese
Make pão de queijo as big or small as you prefer

  If you want to roll a bigger quantity of the cheese bread, here is the recipe with double quantity in the original Portuguese:

1kg de polvilho azedo( encontrado na loja de portugues )

3 batatas grandes cozidas e amassadas

1colher de sopa de sal

misturar muito bem

Em uma tijela:

3ovos

250ml de oleo de milho

500ml de leite

500gr de queijo Gruyere

Misturar tudo com a mistura anterior. Amassar muito bem. Fazer pequenas bolinhas.

Pode-se congelar. Colocar para assar em forma untada, separadas as bolinhas, a 200 graus

até ficarem douradas (15 a 20 minutos ).
